Inner Peace

It’s about balance.
It’s about recognizing when you are going too far in one direction and being able to pull yourself back.
It’s about living in the power of the stillness.
It’s about resting easy in the choices you’ve made and taking care of what doesn’t sit right.
It’s about coming into your own and knowing that you direct your life.
It’s about taking responsibility for yourself and letting others do the same.
It’s possible.

The thing about personal peace is that you are the only one who can make it happen.

There will always be negative events, people, and situations that will have the ability to reach inside your psyche and change your personal landscape from peace to chaos. But the truth is that can only happen if you give away your power and ALLOW it to happen. It is easy to place the blame on someone or something else, but ultimately, we make a decision in every instance to either keep – or give away our power.

The truth is that you…and you alone…control your destiny.

You can control your destiny in one of two ways: you can hand over your power to outside sources and or influences and become an observer of what happens to you, or you can stand in your power and analyze the ways in which you have disconnected from the truth of your soul and then take the reins as you make your life look the way you want it to look.

The power we hold is absolute. We just have to be willing to stand in our truth and want to feel the power. We also have to be willing to take full responsibility for all that we create.

The paradox of personal peace is that when you finally harness the ground-shaking power of your authentic soul…you will feel the most incredible peace you have ever felt.

When you let go of the chains that have bound you to people, thoughts, and memories of a broken past, you will be liberated and your heart will open to the point where you will not only feel more love for yourself, but you will feel so much more love for others who walk on this journey with you.

In the flash of an eye, you will recognize that we all are not very much different and that we are connected in ways that never made sense before. In your judgment of others, you will realize that you also judge yourself.

Your personal peace is a pre-requisite for world peace because the way you feel about and treat yourself ultimately becomes the way you feel about and treat others. When we heal ourselves, we lay the foundation for all to heal.

World peace can only be based on inner peace. If we ask what destroys our inner peace, it’s not weapons and external threats, but our own inner flaws like anger. This is one of the reasons why love and compassion are important because they strengthen us. This is a source of hope.

Sending the sweet energy of love and the wish for peace and the end of the atrocities being committed in Ukraine.

May you all, each and every one of you, feel the incredible power of your personal peace!

    1. Ka! How are you, my friend? I’m so happy you can feel the peace…I think it is in the forefront of most minds these days…the wish for it!
      I hope that life is treating you with love and tenderness <3

    1. Hi Brad…my pleasure to share!
      I will be over shortly…but I think I have seen some new shots of your new living arrangements! Hope it is going well and that you find all you are looking for!
      Thanks for stopping by and adding to the peace! <3

  1. Great reminder to constantly hold ourselves accountable for our thoughts, perspectives, actions, and words, both inside internally and externally. ✨💜

    1. Hi Kristen…thank you for adding your energy 🙂 I can remember when I first caught on that I was somehow responsible for all the chaos in my world. It was a powerful feeling that somehow, I had to change if I ever wanted my world to change. I was very young then, and I continue to learn just how powerful my thoughts and actions indeed are in the way my life looks.
      Sending all kinds of good thoughts and energy. Hope that things are going well in your part of the world! <3

        1. I think that is the beauty of growing older. What we may lose physically, we actually gain in our wisdom. Here’s to standing in our power and not being afraid of it!!

    1. Hey Tom! I am happy it makes sense! The sad thing is that it doesn’t make sense to a lot of people!
      Well, here’s to honoring truth!
      Hope you have a great week ahead!

  2. Your post was just what I needed to read this morning, Lorrie. It is so human to struggle with taking charge of our inner peace. It is always a balance between action and complacency. Thank you for reminding me to make better choices and take action. You are such an inspiration to so many! I am grateful we connected!!

    1. Oh, Judy…ME TOO!! I just know that no matter the subject, we will connect in similar ways and ideas. Thank you for your kind words above, I appreciate them…and yet I continue to heal and work my way through the darkness. If I can be even a tiny inspiration to anyone – it warms my heart. Please know that you inspire me!! And I am Blessitude that we have connected 😉

  3. Thank you for this Lorrie ❣️Beautifully stated. It is our own journey that begins with taking responsibility, understanding ourselves more deeply and embracing every aspect of our being. Peace to you my friend 🙏💕

    1. My pleasure, Val! 🙂 I think you hit the snag that some many cannot overcome…the responsibility part! For some it is just easier to believe that life “happens” to them, and they have nothing to do with it.
      Here’s to a wish for enlightenment and peace! Thanks for stopping by, Val <3

      1. Yep – the first step is self responsibility. We grow from here and feel more and more empowered. This is the place when we can then look inwards and accept the light and shadows. Enjoy this awakening Lorrie 💖

  4. You are so right, we have the ability to stop letting others control our thoughts and our moods. I have to remind myself of this more than once, because it is such a valuable lesson. Thanks for this post!

    1. Amen to that, Ann! Believe me…I need to remind myself too 😉 When we find that power that lives inside us, the power that is so liberating, we move forward in life with such harmony! Sending all good things your way! <3

  5. What a beautiful post Lorrie. Every word of it resonates with me. I particularly love your words “We also have to be willing to take full responsibility for all that we create.” How absolutely true!! We all have a choice as to what sort of a world we create but most don’t realise and give away their power. Thank you for this wonderful reminder that peace is always up to us. Sending you lots of love my friend. Always so fabulous to read your posts. ❤️

    1. You’re the best, Miriam 🙂 Thanks so much for adding your beautiful energy here and for your very kind words. It is so great to connect with like-minded people who really GET IT! I’m a work in progress, but I think this one truth is so absolute – that if people can understand it – it can end up making all the difference! We do give away so much of our power and it is a shame. If everybody took responsibility for their part then created with awareness and intention…WOW!! Just WOW!
      Keep having fun and enjoying your travels, Miriam. I look forward to reading about them!
      Much love, friend <3

      1. Thanks so much Lorrie and yes, we’re all a work in progress aren’t we? But how wonderful to be on this wonderful journey together. Much love back ❤️

    1. Hi Kirt 🙂 Thanks for stopping by…and “getting” this post. It seems the world needs a reminder!
      Hope the rest of your week is filled with lots of good things 🙂

  6. A beautiful post dearest Lorrie.
    Peace is indeed a personal journey . Understanding deeper how we find that inner peace again is a personal experience. Each finds their own paths and various routes into discovery of holding that peace..

    The world right now is within a huge spiritual war, and ugly truths are being waged . As we face what we as humans have created in our great divisions of separateness.

    Peace we all must find within, only then will the external conflict be resolved..

    Have a wonderful Easter dear Lorrie..
    Loved your peaceful post… 🙏💖💕💖

    1. Thank you, Sue 😊🙏 It is truly n amazing time we are living in. There is so much to learn…so much to understand. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your wonderful energy here. I love hearing your take on things as you always make valid points that make me think about issues that are pressing.
      Sending lots of love…And PEACE 💜💜😊😊
